This kit makes an unusual, quirky gift. It contains 5 models to cut out and make. Each one is inspired by an actual building in Bantry, Co.Cork , Ireland. The gables and rears of the buildings are adorned with observations of the town itself, allowing the person assembling the kit to discover beautiful details.
Size of each model: approx 13cm x 6cm x 10cm Scale: 1:76 ( ideal for 00 guage model railways)
Original ink and watercolour drawings printed on high quality 220gsm card
I live only 15 minutes drive from Bantry, and love its colourful shops and pubs. It took me quite a while to choose which buildings to do. In the end I decided to go with Evan's grocery shop, JJ Crowley's pub, Ma Murphy's Pub, The bake House and The Old Courthouse. I draw all facades and details in ink and watercolour, scan them into the computer and then start playing with them in Photoshop.
